  2. If using whole spices (cardamom cinnamon stick and bay leaves) add at this point.
  3. Saute finely chopped white onions until it changes color to pink.
  4. Add ginger and garlic paste. Cook with constant stirring until the raw smell of paste is gone.
  5. Add fresh homemade tomato puree or canned tomato . I did stir the mix but be carefully of burning. Let the tomato cook without stirring if you are worried of burning.
  6. Add tomato paste and let it cook for some time.

  8. Add chicken pieces and just spread it out evenly on the pot.
  9. Turn off the saute setting.
  10. Pour little water. Stir everything well. There should be enough liquid in the pot covering chicken.
  11. Close the lid ensure the steam release knob is in “sealing position”.
  12. Turn on the poultry setting on the Instant Pot and select 10 minutes on the timer (I have shown in the video 15 minutes poultry time But I actually used 10 minutes was too lazy to shoot the edited time setting)
  13. Once the Instant Pot cycle is complete wait until the natural release cycle is complete should take about 10 minutes. Then manually release any pressure if still inside the pot by turning the pressure release know to the “venting position”
  14. Switch in the “saute” setting on the pot.
  15. Open the lid. Add garam masala little more butter and pour cream into it. Simmer for 3 minutes. Sauce should thicken by then.
  16. Turn off Instant pot.
